Combine a guitarist, a bicycling legend, and kids, and you get Mike and the Bike. Michael Ward—a guitarist who’s worked with Ben Harper and the Wallflowers—has written the new children’s book, and gotten his long-time friend, Lance Armstrong, to write the foreword. Illustrated by Bob Thomson, the book also comes with a 30-minute CD of music composed by Ward. Ward, who wanted to try and get kids away from video games and into fitness, says, “Helping inspire kids to discover the world of cycling would be a dream come true.” . . .
